Content Update – Jope Cover

Jope has just finished an amazing cover in biro for issue 3. It’s so complex it hurts. For an idea of the style see the sketch below, which he used as a test. Imagine the complexity and style multiplied by 10 and you might be getting somewhere close. Thanks Jope.

Issue 3 Content Update – Asa Sporbert

In readiness for issue 3 we’ve got a sweet wallpaper collab lined up with one of its featured artists, Asa Sporbert. His work appeared in issue 1 as a feature called Ikonoklastik (see below). He hasn’t lost any of that psychadelic flavour, lots of which will be on display in issue 3. For the wallpaper he’s created Tunnel Vision, an ‘all seeing eye’ to rock on your desktop.

Make sure you grab the download from our homepage when issue 3 is released.

Issue 3 Content Update – Christian Stearry

Recently interviewed Toronto skater/artist/photographer Christian Stearry.

He told us of his illustrated zine and living near Lake Ontario along with other interesting jazz.
Christian on the experience: “The whole process was pretty exciting and spirit boosting! The zine is great, and I’m stoked to be posted up next to some of the other great artists you’ve got in there.”
Some of his best work and the full interview will be on show in Issue 3.

Issue 2 Out Now

It’s out. See it here. Or, if you’re already on the Amartist website, click the ‘ISSUES’ tab.

The Drop Is Imminent

About 90% of content for issue 2 has now been edited and ‘laid out’. In total we’ve got 3 interviews and 4 other features for you.

Unfortunately Kams’ the assistant editor is in hospital at the moment after a bad skateboarding accident. Get well soon bro. As I’m sure you can appreciate, this will delay pubication by a few days.
